And by "later tonight" I meant…

on
(Expect it to be busy tomorrow but quiet tonight. So let’s see if we can make something happen by posting that…) So what do we think we know? Not much. I have a feeling Bridgeport gets hit one way or the other; either a kid or two goes in a deal, or the pending free […] [Read More]

Last ride in

on
Another happy-go-lucky night where it ends with Capuano in disbelief and threatening benchings. Classic. One night, and it’s like it’s December again. On the other hand… First goal, Dwyer breaks free in front of the net, bang, 1-0. Samson scores on the power play, 2-0. The Sound Tigers’ power play puts shots on, but not […] [Read More]

Sweltering — really

It’s always warm upstairs here at the Knick Times Union Center, but it’s especially nasty today. You walk up from the concourse, and the heat just hits you halfway up the stairs. Really. Heat. It’s 20 and icy outside, and it’s like a sauna here. So in case Incredible Crashing Work Compy can’t take the […] [Read More]

Sound. Fury. Nothing.

on
No, really, don’t waste your time by clicking on… Such a strange confluence of things in my head on the drive up Thursday night. (Including Lost. I feel for the poor folks who gave up on that show. They’re missing something wild.) First draft of today’s story included… [Read More]

Tambellini down

on
The Islanders sent Jeff Tambellini to Bridgeport this morning. He should play tomorrow. Ben Walter was getting his MRI on the Island this morning/// Updated again: Sounds like the news is good on Walter; all the tests were negative. Should be out for the weekend, though. [Read More]
